What disappointed you about Hello America?
I haven't written a review this critical ever. If I don't like it, I usually skip it. However, I am a huge Ballard fan, and I am truly appalled at the shoddy quality of the narration. David Ledoux might have been poorly directed in the studio, but whatever the case may be, it almost seemed like he was trying to sabotage the book.
How could the performance have been better?
His voice modulation bordered on hysterically bad. I laughed out loud a few times, shook my head in disbelief, but marched on because, as I said, I love Ballard and I wanted to listen to this book. Imagine the cheesy voice over guy from early to mid 2000s movies, with all that forced gravitas and urgency apropos of nothing. Now imagine that applied to Every. Single. Sentence.
Any additional comments?
This guy doesn't get Ballard and doesn't get the book. A complete joke of a narration. Don't buy this garbage.
